Matt Nathanson Pretty The World Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2010 11:00:00 AM

They tied off your arms
With all their pretty charms
And the same bad lines
That always get you, always get you
And you hate the way they wash you down
The summer hums heavy now
Still you bolded all your best words
So they'd have something
To wrap their mouths around

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I want something
Just a little bit louder

All spun awake and twisted in the head
God, you're always burning up so bright
When there's someone there by your side
So just take me home, I'm a mess enough clean
And I'll lie until I believe

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I want something a little bit louder
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause you're brilliant when you try
Show me how pretty the whole world is tonight

I never thought that I could be
Who I am, I never thought that I could see
Where I was, I never thought that all this was
Just wasn't me, I always thought
That all this was could never be

I never thought that I could be
Who I am, I never thought that I could see
Where I was, I never thought that all this was
Just wasn't me, I always thought
I'd wait here for you

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I want something a little bit louder
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause you're brilliant when you try
Show me how pretty
The whole world is tonight
